'Any man can be a father, but it takes a special person to be a dad.'
Chicken Soup for the Father and Son Soul takes a peak into the lives of fathers and sons, sharing the important male milestones from birth through childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, the senior years, and every step in between. This is a celebration of how fathers and sons carry each other along life's journey. Share the story of one man who didn't think much of becoming a father until the day he laid eyes on his son, and how in a matter of moments his perspective on life and being a dad had profoundly changed forever, and the touching story of a young boy who finds the father he always longed for in a special stepdad, as well as the story of the love and respect between a father-in-law and son-in-law that appears when least expected.
Readers will be inspired by the stories of sons looking up to their fathers and learning by example, and fathers recollecting their own childhoods and relationships with their own dads. These insightful stories show men and boys working through the ups and downs of life, learning as they go and becoming better because of their relationship with each other. These powerful and poignant stories are written from every point of view--fathers, sons, grandfathers, mothers, and wives--everyone who has been deeply touched by the father and son relationship.

Closer bonding... Jun 30, 2009
Being a great fan of Chicken Soup series, I was gifted two books recently - Chicken Soup for the Mother and Daughter Soul and Chicken Soup for the Father and Son Soul. Since I have no daughter, I picked up the second for a read as I experienced a close bond between my son and his dad.I agree with Scott T. gill, who contributed in this book when he says, "What Every son needs is, an inspiration and every father needs encouragement." Life's path are trailed to journey together in thick and thin and when my son and his dad faced the tricker situation of business, I witnessed a closer ties. Reading the stories of the contributors is truly an inspiration, encouragement. I narrated some of these tales to both of them and believe me, somebody else's tales becomes a part of motivation. The three generations of Grandfather, father and son is sometimes a sandwich for the father but I guess, rifts dimish where there is love, care and understanding for each other. These are Gem books and spontaneously love to gift these books of Chicken Soup Soul series. A good pick and must for Dads and sons.
The importance of step-fathers Apr 7, 2008
I am also a contributor to this book, and a father of three boys. The reason I wrote my piece is that I wanted to stress the importance of step-fathers. In this age of broken and reassembled families, a large portion of boys (and girls) in this country are raised by step-fathers. I believe they deserve more praise for the work they put into being good parents. My own step-father was there for me when I needed him most. My story "The Kind Of Man A Boy Needs" is dedicated to him.
Great stories for dad and sons Apr 6, 2008
I am a father of three boys and a contributer to this book. I wrote, "The End of the Pier," because my boys love for me to tell them stories of my childhood. Buy this book, not because it would make me feel better about my storytelling skills, but because every son needs inspiration and every father needs encouragement. My hope is that both will find it here.
